Mladen Stilinović is part of the group show "The Translator´s voice" at the SFKM - Sogn og Fjordane Kunstmuseum. The exhibition focuses on the phenomenon of language. Mother tongue, foreign tongue, official or minority language, endangered language, lingua franca… Whatever category it falls into, language is not only a medium of communication, but it gives us a sense of belonging, creates community, and filters our experience of the world. Equally, language is related to power, and can be used both to include and exclude those who speak differently. In a time when migration and displacement are more and more commonplace, this exhibition asks: what does it mean to live between the languages? Does globalization make us all «translators»? What will be the language of the future?
